On Sunday a leaked image of the new 2017/18 Newcastle away shirt was released (see below).
The smart black design met with widespread approval when the leaked photo was circulated, despite the predictable comments about the sponsor logo impacting on it.
Now 48 hours later and Puma have used social media to give teaser images of a range of various club shirts they are set to unveil.
They all carry a similar black design and amongst the clubs featured as well as Newcastle, are Arsenal, Malmo, Leicester, Borussia Dortmund, SD Eibar, Bordeaux, and Sydney FC.
Here is a still from the teaser video, which appears to confirm that the design we featured on Sunday (see below) is indeed the correct one:

The Mag – 9 July 2017:
Sunday has seen an exclusive reporting on what is claimed to be the new Newcastle away shirt.
The usually very reliable Footy Headlines website has published images (see below) of what is said to be the 2017/18 Newcastle away shirt.
The all black design looking very smart (in my opinion) and perfectly complementing the black and white striped home kit.
I know any sponsor is going to detract from replica shirts to an extent but it has to be said that the new NUFC sponsor logo doesn’t do any favours in particular.
From footy headlines website:
‘NEWCASTLE UNITED 17-18 AWAY KIT
This is the Newcastle United 2017-2018 Away jersey.
The Newcastle 2017-18 Away shirt is predominantly black with tonal jacquard stripes and a black v-collar. The Puma logos, one on the chest opposite of the club crest and one on each sleeve, are golden.
The Fun88 logo, placed on the center front of the jersey, is turquoise with a white border.
Black shorts and socks with gold Puma logos complete the Newcastle United 17-18 Away kit.’
